Home > Africa > South Africa > Lebowa
Lebowa means "North", and thus by implication the home of the
Northern Sotho people - in contrast to Lesotho
and QwaQwa which is the home of the southern Sotho.
Lebowa was granted internal self-government in 1972.
It ceased to exist as a political entity on 27. April 1994 and has been incorporated into South Africa. Its flag and license plates are no longer in use.
